Recently added the G21 AMBI w/Picatinny rail (top) and picked up the G21 Gen2.5 (finger grooves, no rail) today.

I’ll have to review, but I think this completes my efforts to own all the major Glock frames. There are still some nuances I don’t have, like the AMBI with standard rail but right now I think I’m done.

My biggest debate is the 19x. It’s so close to the 45 (and costs more) that I can’t decide if it’s really a different frame than the Gen5 or not.

Nice but I'm sure you'll find room for them when you find one of those odd ones. :cool:

When did Glock start to offer rails?
Gen3s - the standard frame (G17, 22, etc) had them from the start. There is no "Gen2.5" for standard frames. The large frame (G20, 21) had a brief period, not quite a year of production, without them.

The true rarity that very few people know about is the Gen2.5 compensated G20 and 21. A G20c Gen2.5 sold recently for just under $1,500.

Did we not come to the conclusion that "Frank" was a 2.5 frame ?

If I did in the past, I would have been wrong based on what I can see in the picture. The frame looks to be a Gen3 - finger grooves, w/texture and a Glock rail.

Ahh - he is a two pin Gen3 frame which is rare but pins don’t determine a Gen. So it is likely we made an incorrect diagnosis in the past.

There are two pin and three pin Gen2s. 2 and 3 pin Gen3s, 3 pin Gen4s and 2 pin Gen5s (so far).

If you remember the story, he stated out as a Gen2 LE trade in purchase, that developed integrity issues with the frame.

A trip to Glock and this is what I got back, the upper is the same and the lower is a replacement part.

Pretty sure this was back in the 1990's.


This is partly why he got the name, "Frankenstein" ....

I remember Frank! Seems like a lifetime ago, I sent you a Gen4 dot connector so Frank could cover Gen2, 3 and 4. 🤣

I replaced some Gen5 sights recently, not sure what I did with them but I can probably find them if Frank wants to claim another Generation. Gen5 sights are better for old, retired, eyes too (wider notch).

Using trueglo green/red fiber optics for on top viewing and a Lasermax (red) for assurance, it sux to get old !

Sucks to get fat too.

No, actually, I take that back, getting fat was quite enjoyable. Being fat sucks and trying to get un-fat REALLY sucks . Almost as bad as correcting auto correct corrections.
